I first went to Mac's about 20 years ago and had a fabulous steak. More recently I have gone twice and been deeply disappointed - didn't stick to steak! A general warning: if you see "boneless short ribs" on a menu, skip it. It is not short ribs, it is chuck steak. I know. I made the same mistake twice.... More

We go to Mac's Grill all the time (only live about 1 1/2 miles from the restaurant). Very good food, friendly casual environment and great wait staff. They have pub style seating with a very nice bar on one side of the restaurant and more traditional table seating on the other side. Highly recommend the restaurant.

I wrote you an email to explain our disappointment in the way my grandsons rib eye was cooked but you never responded, at the restaurant the server Dinah was superb, your manager never came to our table even after she was aware of the problem. I have been to your restaurant several times but this is the first time a... More

Mac's has good offering of beef and some nice appetizers. The quality of the good is much better than average. Great service and a nice offering of beers including Allegash White one of my favorites. It is good for groups and families. It can be a bit loud when they are busy...so not a romantic dinner for two place. The... More

Recently, we returned to Mac's to enjoy a break from the very hot weather here and had a great discussion; with 2 of the 3 owners - about how the restaurant is doing, current events in town and of course the food etc. As usual; Jerry the managing partner and his brother Dave are easy to talk to and well...

It seems to be getting busier and busier here! We live close by and go a couple times a month. The food is consistent, generous and tasty. I am a big fan of the soups, especially the cheeseburger one! The bar was re-done last year and has ample TVs for watching the local games. It was busy on our last... More

Our meal was delicious but the wait to get seated and the wait to get served was ridiculously long and they are quite pricy.

Our family with young son had a delicious meal, friendly and great service and relaxed atmosphere. Our waitress was perfectly attentive and remembered not to bring our son's milk until his dinner was served.

We are a high energy restaurant with a vibrant neighborhood bar and grill appeal. Though we are known for our steaks, you will find there is something on the menu to please anyone in your group. We serve Choice Black Angus beef which is hand cut daily on the premises. Whether you are looking for a full course meal, or just out for a cold beer and a great burger, you are sure to feel right at home. So, throw on your most comfortable jeans and join us for a great meal and lots of laughs. Just a couple miles from downtown Auburn, you can't miss our log cabin featuring a comfortable deck for outside dining.
